In the final leg of Spheeris' hard-core trilogy she again returns to the LA punk scene - but rather than focus on the bands, she turns her attuned lens to the world of the "gutter punks" that inhabit the streets and lifestyle surrounding it.

Again she's at it with a knock-out soundtrack from Final Conflict, Litmus Green, Naked Aggression and The Resistance, but its a different kind of "Decline..." against the previous two films.

In fact what Spheeris turns in here is moving and sometimes harrowing examination of broken families, broken relationships and ultimately a broken society - and again she embeds herself with her subjects - this time the homeless and the helpless.

In what is an enormous testament to the quality of her filmmaking and her observational eye, Part 3 of this series is a fitting and powerful conclusion.
